to a more non-robust military mission, it may require it -- i don't know, but i think we need a new legal framework for the post-9/11 world. and i think we have pieces of policies that are cobbled together. the patriot act, which is highly controversial. it all just sort of works. but there are serious issues about interrogation policies. and as i have said, i have strongly spoken to john mccain about that. and there are also other issues on how we do these intelligence missions. we have rogue actors who tried it attack borders, we have many different kinds of challenges. i think many will want to look at this. this includes a member of the cia external board. i would personally want to contribute to that legislation and we will want to work closer. >> okay, the first phone call we have is from bob from chicago. >> caller: hello, you just touched on 2009 end it was quite controversial at that time. there was supported rendition like drones and so forth that were part of the administration program that the democrats criticized at that time. obama has now institutionalized those programs. i

much now part of the enforcement picture. i don't think that there's any question but that the funding of immigration agencies and enforcement functions is going to -- it's probably not going to decrease but it's certainly likely to be on a straight line. so straight-line funding, it leads to far more focus on efficiency and effective programs. looking in at outcomes measuring and assessing the evaluation etc.. that keeps you within the box of what is presently going on so i think that's going to be happening in any event. obviously if the congress decides on a much bigger redesign of immigration, there will be very strong cost implications and there will be different ways that this enforcement machinery can be used to enforce the law but also to implement changes and relieve some of the pressure from the enforcement that is presently -- >> if i may go back on this question and how it's been raised because that's an extremely important question. i think doris you are basically saying the -- such that we are going to continue with very large numbers, removal of detention etc. etc. etc.

we do needs to be based upon the needs of the people. and i don't mean the political will of the people. i mean off of a down into the camps and communities and on the fire. if to the extent we are contributing resources to empower and enable a capacity built within the country itself and then get the heck out of the way, i think we'll be doing the right thing. but it can't be what we think is right. absolutely has to be determination of the people were working with. finally, you'll forget me. shakespeare was being ironic when he said to kill all the lawyers. i'm a lawyer by training. i absolutely believe what needs to be done alongside and i don't think we should be worried about tackling it in haiti is to deal effectively and aggressively with land rights issues, while the plot issues, secure tenure issues. people say it can't be done. i can say can be done anywhere in the world. it made remarkable progress in haiti and i ask you at the end of this to join me in continuing this effort. those efforts are critical to what paul was talking about, which is meeting the c
